Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor
It took me 3 years and 7 doctors to figure out what was wrong with me.
My name is Theresa McFadden and this is my ET Story
I started with internal tremors, so I didn't know how to explain what was wrong with me (because I never heard of such a thing, no one in my family had it). I was diagnosed with anxiety (well who wouldn't have anxiety not knowing what was going on with your own body), depression (I wasn't depressed just worried) Went to see my 6th doctor who was trying really hard to find out what was wrong. My next visit I went because my voice started with a "quiver". So he was thinking MS (but that was questionable). He sent me to the RIGHT Neurologist. I lived on the couch for 3 years and thanks to my Neurologist I have some what of a life back.
